Wow, your picture album shocked and surprised me- my Grandmother was Bernice Elizabeth Pendergraft Beck, daughter of Lena Atteberry and Benjamin Franklin Pendergraft- I actually have a letter from your Grandmother telling me that Lena's sister, Mabel, died at the age of 4 years old. I can identify some of your pictures too- my father is in one of them! Bernice died in 1933 of septicemia at the age of 37- my Grandfather, Walter Elisha Beck, put 3 of the boys in an orphan's home outside of Dallas, Texas and the rest of the kids that weren't married went with different family members. Lena's dad was William Kennedy Atte(r)berry, her mother was Mary Jane Davi(d)son. I hope to hear from you soon about all of this- I'm sending your photos to my great-aunt Olive 'Babe' Pendergraft (she was married to Lena's other son, Owen Kenneth) and see who she can identify.
Thank you!!! Your grandmother was so excited about genealogy and would be so grateful about you following up.
